Game 2014.154: Tigers at Royals

I had to think about it, but I’ve decided I like winning 10-1 better than losing 8-4. Justin “Ricky” Verlander dominated KC without really being dominant. Pretty darn good. He didn’t seem too happy about being lifted from the game rather unnecessarily, or maybe he was just upset with Ezequiel Carrera’s nonchalance in allowing a runner […]

Tigers' Justin Verlander ready to bounce back against Tribe

Encouraged by his previous start, Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander hopes to see even more improvement in his fifth start today against Cleveland after missing a turn with a shoulder issue. 'He seems to be bouncing back better in terms of poststart soreness the next day,' manager Brad Ausmus said. 'Cleveland was the one start where he wasn't as crisp. I thought his last outing was good. I know it was four runs, but he had a blister issue and two of the runs were late.'
